First look at Sacha Baron Cohen in costume as The Dictator

06.09.2011

He's done Ali G, Borat and Bruno films, so now it's time for Sacha Baron Cohen to begininventing NEW ridiculous characters for future projects. And he's definitely outdone himself this time.

Below you'll find the first shot of Cohen in costume for THE DICTATOR, his new film inspired by a book written by Saddam Hussein. In the film, a dictator is secretly replaced by a goat herder lookalike so he can travel to New York where he falls for a beautiful fruit vendor. That role will go to Anna Faris, while Cohen will be playing both the dictator and the goat herder.

The original Hussein book, "Zabibah and the King," is about a king who falls for a young woman brutalized by her husband. It's a not so subtle allegory about Hussein, the Iraqi people, and America, and this film seems to be a rough satire of that concept.

Check out Cohen in costume below, I like the vertically symmetrical hair he's got going on.

I hope that isn't the final beard he's using for the film cause it looks fake. It looks like it's starting to come off on the right side.

Feels a little like the over-the-top beard that Woody Allen sported in one of his earliest (and funniest) films, BANANAS.

awesome

he truely is one of the greatest actors of our generation. Whatever he ventures on, he does %100. Like or hate the movies, you have to admit that Borat and Bruno are two well developed characters that he never broke from while filming. Cant wait to see how he does for the Freddie Mercury movie
